Hukilau Lanai Price: $6.95 to $10.95 (appetizers only) Scoping it out: Wine lovers take note: This garden restaurant in Kapaa offers 20 different bottles of wine for less than $20 (glasses are about $5.75 to $6) each. And although the dinner menu is out of our reach (most entrees are more than $20), the pupu (appetizer) selection is excellent and most cost $8 to $9. We loved the artisan cheeses, barbecue ribs and sweet potato ravioli with lemon grass cream sauce. And an ample portion of cheese and tomato-crusted focaccia and dipping sauce accompanied our order (for free), which helped make this a full meal. Lovely garden ambience, with tiki torches flaming and the ocean in the distance.
